Run, Lena, Run!
Mar 21, 2013 by Lena Derisavifard

Hi everyone!

My name is Lena Derisavifard, and I am NOT an athlete.

Dancing around in my living room singing show tunes is what I would consider a work out, so it's safe to say I never imagined running a half marathon...until Team in Training(TNT) came into my life!

TNT has partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to raise money to help relentlessly search for a cure for all blood cancers. TNT has given me the oportuninty and motivation to train for a half matathon. I have met so many amazing people with incredible stories of strength and triumph, and I am so lucky to have the opporutunity to make a difference.

Please help me in reaching my goal of raising $3,200 for the LLS. Every dollar helps!

Each step I take during my race on April 28th will be one step closer in finding a cure for cancer.

Thank you for your donations and support!!!

Teams are made up of individuals. Without them, there is no team.

Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

I have a mission-to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To accomplish that mission, I’m participating in a sports endurance event as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training. Like the other members of TNT, I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I’m improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well.

Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures.

    "Lena, I hope this donation illustrates that I love you and support you in whatever endeavors you find yourself in. You always do find yourselves in new pickles--no high school crude humor intended. Holla at me if you still need support by the time the deadline rolls around; I would love to help out wherever needed. Excited for you, Solomon"
